Alexandre Smirnov

Owner

Having had an interest in scuba diving since childhood, Alex finally fulfilled his lifelong dream of getting certified in 2012. Since then, he has dived in various places in Tennessee, the Bahamas, and Mexico. He plans to expand that list, as well as earn more advanced certifications, as soon as time allows.

As his day job, Alex works as a mechanical engineer, subcontracting for the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). He purchased the Loch Low‑Minn Scuba Diving Resort during the 2014 season, and since then he has been spending every spare moment updating the facilities and planning for the future.
